why am i suddenly allergic to eyelash extensions

Eyelash extensions are the most popular beauty method from the twentieth century until today.

The reason it is popular is that this is a quick, semi-aesthetic beauty method. (using false lashes to attach to your real lashes).

The beauty effect is obvious to everyone. The eyes become soulful. I am sure others will be surprised if you have eyes with long, curled eyelashes.

Know that it is the most popular semi-aesthetic beauty method, almost completely safe. However, some women still suffer from the allergic phenomenon.

It could be an allergy the first time you get your eyelash extensions, or you are having normal extensions when you are allergic to it one day.

Momi Lash will find the answer in today’s post and explain in detail why you are allergic to it. Let’s go!!!

Why am I all of a sudden allergic to lash extensions

why am i suddenly allergic to eyelash extensions


I am having a normal eyelash extension when suddenly, one day, I have an allergy. It’s hard to understand!

On Reddit, there are often posts similar to this:

I usually go to the saloon to get lash extensions and reload my lash extensions every 2-3 weeks. In the last couple of times, I went to the Beauty Salon and reloaded my extensions when I got a blockage, which gave me a cold (fever) for a few days. My eyes that contain newly connected lashes felt a bit itchy, but my eyes weren’t swollen or red (in other cases, it was swollen and red). This made me think I was reacting to eyelash glue, which seemed like a reaction that my lashes were not suitable. Then what should I do ?! Thanks.

Allergic problems after eyelash extensions

Sudden allergic reactions, as well as some general allergic reactions, are known as “contact dermatitis.”

Usually, symptoms and an allergic reaction will appear as soon as a few hours after the eyelash technician places the eyelash extensions in place of your eyes.

Allergic reactions can occur in one eye or possibly both eyes, and if both, you will experience symptoms such as itching, redness, and swelling on the part of your eyelid.

Causes of allergy after eyelash extensions

A reaction to eyelash glue causes most allergies.

The main reason is that during eyelash extensions, the lash glue leaks onto the eyelids or gets caught in the eye, causing a reaction.

(The basic rule in the eyelash extension cycle is that the eyelash extensions will be embedded in the eyelash glue and then placed on the part of your actual eyelashes.)

If you did not know, currently almost eyelash glue contains a substance called formaldehyde, a known cause of conjunctivitis, which is inflammation of the cornea and conjunctiva.

In addition to formaldehyde, a person may also be allergic to lead or benzoic acid, which certain cosmetic products may contain.

To avoid these unwanted allergic reactions, it’s best to use formaldehyde-free eyelash extensions and avoid washing your face for a few hours after extensions.

The best advice for you is to ask a salon technician about the ingredients in the eyelash glue.

Also, beauty salons should only import and use safe, formaldehyde-free eyelash extensions to ensure your clients’ safety under any circumstances.

Allergy and irritation are two completely different states

Allergy and irritation are two different conditions that you might experience after getting eyelash extensions, so what’s the difference?

An allergic reaction to eyelash glue is a rare occurrence, but it is still possible.

Dealing with the client’s problem of reacting to eyelash extensions is probably the worst thing for an eyelash artist.

Having to inform the customer that it is necessary to remove them is something the customer does not like.

However, this is something worth doing and should be done to ensure the health of customers.

The most important thing is that you need to differentiate between ALLERGY AND IRRITATION

It will help you to make the best decision in finding a solution.

You often associate allergy with irritation. Although some warning signs between an allergy that prolongs eyelashes and irritation may be similar, there are some key differences.

While clients often associate any reaction as an allergic reaction to eyelash extensions, they are more likely to be actually experiencing irritation. While some warning signs between eyelash stretching allergy and irritation may be similar, there are some key differences.

Symptoms of allergy and irritation after eyelash extensions

Allergic symptoms after eyelash extensions

Allergic reactions to eyelash extensions are rare and can appear in different forms. The most common are:

Swelling of the eyes or swelling of the eyelids

Redness of the cornea

Itching or discomfort around the eye area

These symptoms should appear within the first 48 hours after the eyelash is applied.

Reactions may become worse and more dramatic as a client is exposed to more exposure to the allergen.

Symptoms of irritation after eyelash extensions

Although irritation has some of the same signs as an allergy, they are usually less serious and can go away.

Allergic reactions will usually occur within the first 24 hours or several hours after applying for the lash extensions.

Common symptoms are as follows:

Red eyes



These are the reactions you will experience with irritation, which subside quickly and become milder after a few hours.

Irritation can also occur when a client has a seasonal allergy or if their eyes generally tend to be more sensitive.

If they only experience mild irritation after applying and want to hold the lashes for a day or two to see if the irritation subsides.

Remember to check back in 24 – 48 hours to make sure symptoms are gone.

What should I do if I have allergies?

The time depends on its severity. The average person can experience these symptoms from a few hours to a few days.

In this case, you should remove the eyelash extensions. You should also avoid future eyelash extensions and use mascara instead.

A person can often treat an allergic reaction with home remedies, such as eye drops or allergy medicine.

If you feel it is getting worse, it’s best to see your doctor check and develop specific treatment solutions.

Tips to help minimize allergies and irritation after eyelash extensions

Sit in a cool room, use a fan to spread the smoke (eyelash glue) out of your eyes.

Remove primer and clean eyelashes with saline solution.

Skip the eyelash patch and use a bandage to secure it.

The next time you have to get lash extensions, use a less smoky and faster drying time.

It is important to know how to take care of the eyelash extensions, and the salon also needs to explain this to the client.
